FOOD FEATURES How to make Kefir

Kefir is a grain that you ferment in either milk or water (that’s why people talk about milk kefir or water kefir). We regularly have a jar of milk kefir on the go in the gréatfood kitchen.

(Eat a few spoons of milk kefir after eating a pizza and the next day you won’t feel that your waist has tripled in size.)

BREAKFAST French Toast with Berry Compote and Sour Cream
